War. It destroyed everything Lizzie ever loved and held dear. It took her family and friends. The bombings and the raids claimed the loves of everyone around her. And in the midst of all the destruction and chaos, amid the death and carnage, one man stood out. A man she had met only once, who stole her heart and claimed it for his own. Lizzie swore never to fall in love. She made a vow, of blood and vengeance, a promise of revenge. She would do everything in power to take down the militia and end the war, anything to make the men responsible for her family’s horrific death pay the ultimate price. In the midst of all the fighting, of all the reckless nights, she comes face to face with the man she thought perished all those years ago. In an instant her heart is captured and held immobile by a pair of silvery grey eyes that haunt her dreams and her past. Fighting on opposite sides of the war, Alec and Lizzie must find a way to survive against an enemy that wants nothing more than to annihilate everything they stand for. Passion filled nights and dangerous days lead them to the inevitable conclusion, where love, commitment, and sacrifice may be the only way for them to survive.
